Have you ever made use or came across expensive backpacks for men? Did you notice any difference or similarities between the expensive and the inexpensive? When I mean expensive, I mean backpacks from luxurious brands. I am not talking about backpacks that cost below $100 but for those that cost over $1000.
There are some of us out there that don’t buy products that are not from prestigious high-class brands. These type of brands mostly target customers that are from rich backgrounds. I mean how often have you seen a Louis Vuitton product selling below $100.
If you have come across such then there is a high probability that you got yourself a fake. Even Louis Vuitton Products on sale cost above $100. Such expensive products are not for those afraid to spend money. They are for those that are willing to have products just because of the brand behind the product.
Have you ever made use of a Gucci backpack? How did it feel when you told someone that your backpack is Gucci made. I bet it felt great because not a lot of people can afford to buy a Gucci backpack.
Now don’t get me wrong because I am not implying in any way that buying low-cost backpacks is demeaning but what I am trying to say is that there is a feel to buying backpacks from luxurious brands. It gives you a sought of high class feel that can make you feel on top of the world.
There are expensive backpacks for men as well as for women but my focus on this post would be on that for men. Most of these backpacks can also be used by women but I just decided to make the theme of this post geared more towards men.
How did I come about this list? It was pretty simple because all I did was to go to youtube and searched for luxurious brands. I also performed a little google search. Some of these brands I was aware of while others I wasn’t too familiar with. After identifying some really luxurious brands what I did next was to check if they also produced backpacks and voila, I had my list.
How we all see these brands differ so I decided to create the list in no particular order. Some of us might be familiar with these brands while some others might not be too familiar with them. They have their own unique designs but what they have in common is that they are luxurious and expensive backpacks.
Josh Damier Graphite Canvas | Louis Vuitton’s
According to Louis Vuitton’s website this particular design was invented in 1888 by Georges Vuitton and was reintroduced by Damier Ebène in 1998 and it has been one of their major successes which led to different patterns of this particular design with DAMIER GRAPHITE canvas been one of them.
It was crafted from signature Damier canvas with refined cowhide leather trim. Its clean lines and simple style distinguishes it from other backpacks. Its compact design makes it roomy and yet lightweight and it suits the lifestyle of men always on the go.
This is a pretty expensive backpack for men and it, therefore, came with guidelines on how to take care of it and I bet this guideline applies to most of the backpacks on this list.
- Ensure not to scratch or rub the product against abrasive surface especially the leather trim.
- Keep backpack away from damp or humid environment and make sure you avoid exposing it to direct sunlight and any direct source of heat.
- Avoid any material that may transfer their colored pigments unto the backpack.
- Keep backpack away from water and never use soap on the backpack. If for any reason water comes in contact with it use a lint-free, light-colored absorbent cloth to wipe the water.
- Store backpack in the protective pouch provided if the backpack is not in use.
- Use a soft-colored light cloth to wipe the linings of the backpack if it gets dirty or in case of superficial stains.
When I wrote a post on some really amazing backpacks for women I did some research on some backpacks that were amazing and while researching I came across an article that wrote on Louis Vuitton regularly burning their unsold goods.
I was surprised at this and had to do further research to find out if it was true. I found out that it was actually true and Louis Vuitton actually does burn their unsold products. Apparently, this was done in order to prevent putting lower prices on them.
Louis Vuitton is a luxurious brand and doing this actually makes their products become scarce which means they would actually be able to control demands and their goods won’t end up flooding the market.
Large backpack with LA Angels patch | Gucci
It would be pretty strange mentioning luxury brands without mentioning Gucci. There are some brands known in most countries around the world and Gucci is one of them.
They were originally into leather goods and sold in just a store shop before they were transformed gradually into what they currently are making them the most valuable Italian brand.
This brings me to one of their recent products in the backpack industry which is Gucci’s large backpack with LA Angels patch. This creative design was inspired by the Creative Director’s New York Yankees baseball hat. Gucci incorporated a mix of Major League Baseball teams into the Cruise 2019 collection.
It was made in Italy and it is displayed on Brick red and beige Original GG canvas with a black mesh back. It has three front zipper pockets with four side zipper pockets with 2 on each side. It has an interior padded compartment where your tablets and similar sized items can be placed.
As at the time of writing this post it was priced at $2100. If you are able to find an original Gucci backpack for less than $1000 please let me know because I don’t think I have ever seen one that cost less than $2000.
Cityback 27 Backpack | Herme
When I saw the price of this I was like damn this is one expensive backpack for men. They are a French high fashion luxury manufacturing company established since 1837. Priced at $8450 the Hermes City Backpack was made with taurillon Maurice leather and it comes with adjustable straps, zip closure, and palladium plated hardware.
As I said, this is a pretty costly bag and requires special care so you can get your money’s worth from the backpack. With that said, I took the liberty to include exactly how to take care of this backpack and all this information was gotten from leather care instructions from Hermes City Backpack sales page.
- Protect your product from prolonged exposure to intense light and heat which may alter the color.
- If for any reason the product comes in contact with water, wipe immediately with a soft, lint-free cloth as this would help prevent the formation of stains and blisters.
- Keep your product away from materials that can leave marks on the product and some examples are ink (markers and pens), oily products (makeup and lipstick), perfume and alcohol-based products.
- Avoid repeated contacts with raw or dark textiles as this can have an undesirable effect on the leather of the product.
- To preserve the shape of the product do not overload it or put items that are irregularly shaped into the backpack.
- Do not use the product every single time. Give it some rest to preserve its original beauty.
- When you are not making use of it please store in a temperate, dry environment away from light if possible it should be placed in its original box or dust cover.
- Place tissue paper or bubble wrap inside to maintain its silhouette and make sure all the zippers are zipped and straps attached.
- Do not make use of anti-humidity sachets, as they have a drying effect on leather.
- The best way to have your product cleaned is to have it cleaned by expert Hermes craftsmen. Contact the Hermes after-sales service if you have any questions or concerns.

It has a leather top handle and also comes with adjustable shoulder straps. There are three exterior zip pockets, one interior slip pocket, and one zip pocket. It makes use of press-stud and drawcord closures. Its edges were hand painted and its metal hardware was polished.
This seems to be a common trait of expensive backpacks. They like been hand sewed by professionals instead of the usual using of machines and it seems some people actually prefer a backpack when it is hand sewed.

A Simple Guide on How to Purchase These Products.
I intentionally did not include links to the sales page of these products listed on this page so if you intend to purchase these products I would suggest you get it from the official website of the brands listed.
You can do this by simply typing in google the brand name, click on it and then copy the name of the product from this post and place it into the search bar provided on the homepage of brands listed in this post. You should be able to locate the product when you do that.
If you are not able to locate it that way your second option would be to copy the name of the product and just paste it into google search bar. Whatever results displays make sure the brand name is attached to the url of the product page you decide to click.
Sometimes the official website of some brands might not have the brand name attached to the URL. You need to be sure of this by performing a little investigation. For example, the official website of Saint Laurent does not have the name Saint Laurent attached to their website instead their URL has “ysl” as the name on the URL.
Some websites are that way so you need to know this when performing your search.
It is best to buy these products from their official websites as you would get the best price and also you would be able to speak with their customer care unit.
I don’t advice you buy products this expensive from any other place other than the official website of the brand. If you wish to purchase the exact same product use the picture of the product on this page to locate it after following the procedure above.
There are more expensive backpacks for men that are not listed on this post that are just as awesome but this post could accommodate only 10. Buying expensive bags has its advantages and it is totally up to you to make the decision on getting one.
